One thing I have noticed with Nvidia video cards if you have two displays
connected to the same card and they are not the precise same frame rate,
for example 60.02 versus 59.99, this will cause tearing on one of the
screens but not the other. I have found in my history no way to prevent
this, so I've purchased an AMD card instead for multiple monitors.

If you just have one screen on your computer then I'm not 100% sure what to
offer as a solution to this issue, however I have found that using the KDE
desktop with compositing, leaving compositing enabled full-time, and using
the I believe it is the copy frames option? ields the best result for
tear-free video.
